 So Mega Millions will become 5/56 and 1/46 on June 24th with California joining and Powerball will become 5/55 and 1/42 on August 29th with Oklahoma and maybe North Carolina joining in 2006.

 Any thoughts?

    I hope with the odds being changed that it creates more large jackpot winners and maybe a few records too for both games.

      It's a little too early to assume that NC is starting a lottery, period. But I agree OK will join PB by                next year.

            it just seems like NC would get mega millions.  it would make more sense since TN and SC has PB.

            I was hoping TN would choose mega millions to kind even things out.  That's how i thought it was.  I didn' t really notice that the big states has mm and smaller ones pb.

                    Cash, I'm sure NY Lotto isn't that bad.  If u just happen to buy a ticket and match all 6 numbers you'd be jumping up and down cause u won =)~

                    tell me u wouldn't be happy.

                    also, I wanted to ask u.  What would u do if u decided to buy that MA annuity game ticket and win the jackpot but it's only available in annual installments?

                      ap:

                      NY Lotto is a bad bet, whether you want cash or annuity.

                      In MA I play Ca$h WinFall, no annuity-only game for me.
